There is no charge for parking or admission to the game, which will include four quarters and a halftime. Prior to the game, the field will be open from 4-5 p.m. for kids to meet players and coaches. Additionally, those in attendance can take the field after the game for autographs and fan interaction. Schedule cards for the 2015 season, as well as autograph cards, will be available to the public.
Due to construction on the west side of Centennial Bank Stadium, fans are asked to park in the stadium's south lot adjacent to the practice fields, the Convocation Center and Tomlinson Stadium parking lots. As a safety precaution, the west side stands will be closed, and fans need to sit on the east side of the stadium.
Also due to construction, concession purchases will be cash only. The concession stands will include popcorn, hot dogs, drinks and candy. Arkansas Braces will have their Sno-Cone truck, known as "Snowy", on site offering sugar-free sno cones at no charge. Fans can purchase 2015 season tickets from A-State Ticket Office representatives, and the A-State Bookstore will sell merchandise at the stadium.
The Arkansas State marching band and cheerleaders will attend, adding to the festivities for the game which will feature "Coach Experience" winner Angie Gallaher acting as head coach for one of the teams. As part of the "Coach Experience," Meredith Poland was selected by Gallaher to act as head coach on the opposite sideline.
The Red Wolves began spring camp March 13. Arkansas State returns 54 lettermen and eight All-Sun Belt Conference selections.
